Vikuiti screens offer crisp image quality, ultra-large size and wide viewing angles
Spanish TV Station Presents News, Sport and Weather using Vikuiti Rear Projection Displays from 3M
Broadcasting studios are realising the benefits of rear projection technology for delivery of compelling visuals to studio and television audiences. Vikuiti Rear Projection displays from diversified technology company 3M, are being used to present news and sport programmes, as well as interactive weather forecasts on Spain�s new TV station called CANAL 4. Imagic Vision, a 3M Certified Product Integrator specialising in the creation of dynamic publicity solutions for shopping malls, airports, exhibition venues and special applications throughout Spain, was awarded the CANAL 4 contract in a comprehensive benchmark test against competitive display screen proposals. �We suggested the evaluation with complete confidence of demonstrating a superior solution, taking advantage of Vikuiti Rear Projection screen and film products, and technical support from 3M Display and Graphics Division in Spain,� said Javier Ortiz of Imagic Vision.� By using rear projection technology, Imagic Vision has been able to provide CANAL 4 with a high-performance, cost-effective display solution within a short timeframe. The integrator has installed four Vikuiti Rear Projection screens at the broadcaster�s studios; one 12 x 3m screen supports the Maracana Sports magazine show and two 2,67 x 2m screens support the CANAL 4 News programme. A fourth 3 x 2m screen combines Vikuiti Rear Projection film with a 2.2 x 1.2m Interactive Touch Foil from Visual Planet, the interactive solution provider. This combination enables the weather man to control the content with a touch of his finger, bringing up vibrant maps and delivering more engaging weather forecasts. The high image fidelity, outstanding brightness, ultra-large screen sizes and 180 degree viewing angles achievable with Vikuiti Rear Projection technology maximise creative flexibility for broadcasters to communicate dramatic visuals and breaking news to television viewers. The lightweight Vikuiti screens are easy to install, with minimal engineering costs compared to an array of plasma display panels or TFT-LCDs. Jose Barrantes, Sales and Marketing Manager for 3M Espa�a S.A, said, �The CANAL 4 installation highlights the tremendous performance advantages Vikuiti Rear Projection screens have to offer in the broadcast space, and we now expect many other Spanish television stations to adopt this technology. Imagic Vision�s technical expertise has been crucial in solving the application-specific challenges leading to successful delivery.
